2009-07-14crypto: ahash - Add instance/spawn supportHerbert Xu1-0/+51
This patch adds support for creating ahash instances and using ahash as spawns. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-14crypto: ahash - Convert to new style algorithmsHerbert Xu3-60/+89
This patch converts crypto_ahash to the new style. The old ahash algorithm type is retained until the existing ahash implementations are also converted. All ahash users will automatically get the new crypto_ahash type. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-14crypto: api - Remove frontend argument from extsize/init_tfmHerbert Xu1-4/+2
As the extsize and init_tfm functions belong to the frontend the frontend argument is superfluous. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>

This patch changes descsize to a run-time attribute so that implementations can change it in their init functions. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-12crypto: async - Use kzfree for requestsHerbert Xu2-3/+3
This patch changes the kfree call to kzfree for async requests. As the request may contain sensitive data it needs to be zeroed before it can be reallocated by others. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-11crypto: sha256_generic - Add export/import supportHerbert Xu1-0/+6
This patch adds export/import support to sha256_generic. The exported type is defined by struct sha256_state, which is basically the entire descriptor state of sha256_generic. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-11crypto: sha1_generic - Add export/import supportHerbert Xu1-0/+8
This patch adds export/import support to sha1_generic. The exported type is defined by struct sha1_state, which is basically the entire descriptor state of sha1_generic. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-11crypto: shash - Export/import hash state onlyHerbert Xu1-4/+14
This patch replaces the full descriptor export with an export of the partial hash state. This allows the use of a consistent export format across all implementations of a given algorithm. This is useful because a number of cases require the use of the partial hash state, e.g., PadLock can use the SHA1 hash state to get around the fact that it can only hash contiguous data chunks.

2009-07-08crypto: shash - Add __crypto_shash_castHerbert Xu1-0/+5
This patch adds __crypto_shash_cast which turns a crypto_tfm into crypto_shash. It's analogous to the other __crypto_*_cast functions. It hasn't been needed until now since no existing shash algorithms have had an init function. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>

2009-07-08crypto: shash - Add shash_instanceHerbert Xu1-0/+26
This patch adds shash_instance and the associated alloc/free functions. This is meant to be an instance that with a shash algorithm under it. Note that the instance itself doesn't have to be shash. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-07crypto: api - Add crypto_alloc_instance2Herbert Xu1-0/+2
This patch adds a new argument to crypto_alloc_instance which sets aside some space before the instance for use by algorithms such as shash that place type-specific data before crypto_alg. For compatibility the function has been renamed so that existing users aren't affected. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2009-07-07crypto: api - Add new template create functionHerbert Xu1-0/+1
This patch introduces the template->create function intended to replace the existing alloc function. The intention is for create to handle the registration directly, whereas currently the caller of alloc has to handle the registration. This allows type-specific code to be run prior to registration.

2009-06-18random: Add optional continuous repetition test to entropy store based rngsNeil Horman1-0/+10
FIPS-140 requires that all random number generators implement continuous self tests in which each extracted block of data is compared against the last block for repetition. The ansi_cprng implements such a test, but it would be nice if the hw rng's did the same thing. Obviously its not something thats always needed, but it seems like it would be a nice feature to have on occasion. I've written the below patch which allows individual entropy stores to be flagged as desiring a continuous test to be run on them as is extracted. By default this option is off, but is enabled in the event that fips mode is selected during bootup.

2009-06-17[IA64] Convert ia64 to use int-ll64.hMatthew Wilcox1-1/+1
It is generally agreed that it would be beneficial for u64 to be an unsigned long long on all architectures. ia64 (in common with several other 64-bit architectures) currently uses unsigned long. Migrating piecemeal is too painful; this giant patch fixes all compilation warnings and errors that come as a result of switching to use int-ll64.h. Note that userspace will still see __u64 defined as unsigned long. This is important as it affects C++ name mangling.

2009-06-16fbdev: add support for handoff from firmware to hw framebuffersDave Airlie1-1/+11
With KMS we have ran into an issue where we really want the KMS fb driver to be the one running the console, so panics etc can be shown by switching out of X etc. However with vesafb/efifb built-in, we end up with those on fb0 and the KMS fb driver on fb1, driving the same piece of hw, so this adds an fb info flag to denote a firmware fbdev, and adds a new aperture base/size range which can be compared when the hw drivers are installed to see if there is a conflict with a firmware driver, and if there is the firmware driver is unregistered and the hw driver takes over. It uses new aperture_base/size members instead of comparing on the fix smem_start/length, as smem_start/length might for example only cover the first 1MB of the PCI aperture, and we could allocate the kms fb from 8MB into the aperture, thus they would never overlap.

The LIS302DL accelerometer chip has a 'click' feature which can be used to detect sudden motion on any of the three axis. Configuration data is passed via spi platform_data and no action is taken if that's not specified, so it won't harm any existing platform. To make the configuration effective, the IRQ lines need to be set up appropriately. This patch also adds a way to do that from board support code.

2009-06-16remove put_cpu_no_resched()Thomas Gleixner1-1/+0
put_cpu_no_resched() is an optimization of put_cpu() which unfortunately can cause high latencies. The nfs iostats code uses put_cpu_no_resched() in a code sequence where a reschedule request caused by an interrupt between the get_cpu() and the put_cpu_no_resched() can delay the reschedule for at least HZ. The other users of put_cpu_no_resched() optimize correctly in interrupt code, but there is no real harm in using the put_cpu() function which is an alias for preempt_enable(). The extra check of the preemmpt count is not as critical as the potential source of missing a reschedule. Debugged in the preempt-rt tree and verified in mainline.

2009-06-16poll: avoid extra wakeups in select/pollEric Dumazet1-0/+3
After introduction of keyed wakeups Davide Libenzi did on epoll, we are able to avoid spurious wakeups in poll()/select() code too. For example, typical use of poll()/select() is to wait for incoming network frames on many sockets. But TX completion for UDP/TCP frames call sock_wfree() which in turn schedules thread. When scheduled, thread does a full scan of all polled fds and can sleep again, because nothing is really available. If number of fds is large, this cause significant load. This patch makes select()/poll() aware of keyed wakeups and useless wakeups are avoided. This reduces number of context switches by about 50% on some setups, and work performed by sofirq handlers.

2009-06-16vmscan: count the number of times zone_reclaim() scans and failsMel Gorman1-0/+3
On NUMA machines, the administrator can configure zone_reclaim_mode that is a more targetted form of direct reclaim. On machines with large NUMA distances for example, a zone_reclaim_mode defaults to 1 meaning that clean unmapped pages will be reclaimed if the zone watermarks are not being met. There is a heuristic that determines if the scan is worthwhile but it is possible that the heuristic will fail and the CPU gets tied up scanning uselessly. Detecting the situation requires some guesswork and experimentation so this patch adds a counter "zreclaim_failed" to /proc/vmstat. If during high CPU utilisation this counter is increasing rapidly, then the resolution to the problem may be to set /proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode to 0.

2009-06-16oom: move oom_adj value from task_struct to mm_structDavid Rientjes2-1/+2
The per-task oom_adj value is a characteristic of its mm more than the task itself since it's not possible to oom kill any thread that shares the mm. If a task were to be killed while attached to an mm that could not be freed because another thread were set to OOM_DISABLE, it would have needlessly been terminated since there is no potential for future memory freeing. This patch moves oomkilladj (now more appropriately named oom_adj) from struct task_struct to struct mm_struct. This requires task_lock() on a task to check its oom_adj value to protect against exec, but it's already necessary to take the lock when dereferencing the mm to find the total VM size for the badness heuristic. This fixes a livelock if the oom killer chooses a task and another thread sharing the same memory has an oom_adj value of OOM_DISABLE. This occurs because oom_kill_task() repeatedly returns 1 and refuses to kill the chosen task while select_bad_process() will repeatedly choose the same task during the next retry. Taking task_lock() in select_bad_process() to check for OOM_DISABLE and in oom_kill_task() to check for threads sharing the same memory will be removed in the next patch in this series where it will no longer be necessary. Writing to /proc/pid/oom_adj for a kthread will now return -EINVAL since these threads are immune from oom killing already. They simply report an oom_adj value of OOM_DISABLE.
